    I appreciate that the PLP is having these meetings. It's a good forum to hear from multiple candidates at a time.

    I am especially interested in hearing Renee Ming in St George's. I have heard great things about her!

    Is the OBA going to have any town halls? Would be good to see Kenny Bascome, Nandi Davis and Gaylynne Cannonier have a town hall meeting.

    Or perhaps Alexis Swan, Mark Pettingill, & Ras Mykkal...

    Shouldn't it be standing strong for Bermuda and Bermudians...i wish they would make up their mind, perhaps they just say whatbthey think people want to hear to win their vote. Sounds like the decieving party known as the PLP

      Maybe if you expect standing room only so far in advance you could get some extra chairs ahead of time?
      Learned that from Sesame Street.

    Is this the PLP answer to real on the ground, knock on the doors campaigning? They are still unseen in Devonshire. The OBA has been around...twice.

    Knock on my door. I have about 1.5b things you need to explain. I'm not interested in being a deer in the headlights, standing strong, frozen in fear, as the truck of reality is about to run me down. I've seen plenty of them. It is not pretty. Neither will be another PLP term. Bermuda simply cannot afford the PLP.

    Will there be a puppet show? It might attract more people if they thought the Muppets were going to make an appearance.

    In fact, why don't we vote the Muppets into office. They couldn't do any worse than Cog, Handbag, Flip Flop and the rest of them.
